She promised us purses, and purses she created. Nicole Richie officially unveiled the House of Harlow 1960 handbag collection today, and the options are plentiful — and pretty! Based on the line’s Bohemian vibe, the collection includes croc clutches, leather carry-alls and everything in between. According to a release, the concept behind the line was juxtaposing casual and luxury, combining relaxed vintage leathers with materials like young calf hair. Hardware also played a big role in the design; gold and black triangle studs frame some of the bigger bags, and jaguar heads close clutches. “I wanted to make sure that each piece is special and then be able to grow it slowly and organically season after season,” Richie told WWD of the new collection. “I always try to design pieces that are universal, meaning anyone can wear and carry it.” The bags, available at high-end department and specialty stores beginning in mid-July, will range in price from $150 to $625.
